- 2 packages Coleman Natural Uncured Bacon
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 bunch basil leaves
Preheat oven to 400° F.
Take a strip of bacon and starting at one end, roll it up tightly to form a rosette. Feel free to stack two strips prior to rolling for an even heftier looking rose. Watch our video tutorial for further guidance.
Secure the bacon rose with two toothpicks to form a cross through the spiral as close to the bottom of one end as you can.
Space out the bacon roses on a wire rack on top of a foil lined baking sheet.
Brush bacon roses with maple syrup then sprinkle brown sugar and cracked black pepper.
Bake for approximately 20-30 minutes for the single-layered bacon rose and approximately 40 minutes for the double-layered rose.
Remove from oven, set aside and let cool.
Remove toothpicks carefully, making sure the roses maintain their form.
Place two basil leaves down under each bacon roses and place onto a plate or serving board.
